Teaching is more than imparting knowledge; it is inspiring change. Learning is more than absorbing facts; it is acquiring understanding.

Improve your future whilst improving theirs Gain skills for your CV and future career to impress prospective employers
Tutoring with SP Tutors for the National Tutoring Programme is not only a chance to contribute positively to your community, it can provide you with skills and experience for future employment opportunities. Being a tutor shows you have the communication skills required to be a leader. You will have demonstrated the ability to convey clear and concise instructions and teach concepts in a way that students can easily understand and apply. Tutoring also shows you have great initiative and can easily adapt to a situation, which will impress prospective employers.
Tutoring is hugely rewarding; it gives you the opportunity to focus on changing a young person’s life for the better whilst earning a competitive wage. You’ll be an inspiration to each young person – your outlook will make it easier for you to communicate effectively with other young people, keeping learning current and relevant.
Not only will you be using your creativity and demonstrating the skills you already have, you’ll be learning new skills:
honing a message or concept that can be communicated easily, concisely and to the right audience
planning and organising your time to maximum effect
What’s more, you are in control of your working hours so you can fit tutoring around your other commitments and responsibilities.
SP Tutors provides training that even the most experienced teachers find beneficial. We have a multi-level training model with plenty of guidance for new tutors. With access to national experts on Tackling Disadvantage and Research Schools for evidence-informed strategies, we have tailored course modules to fit all interests and requirements.
We will help you to find a tutoring placement but our support doesn’t stop there. We continue to work to:
keep you up-to-speed with the changing needs of your tutoring placement
facilitate peer discussion so you can share great ideas and offer great solutions
guide you on the pastoral needs of your tutoring placement so that positive relationships are formed between tutor and pupil
maintain a great relationship between you and the class teacher so that learning is tailored to pupil’s needs – complementing work going on in school
grow your confidence, so that you can grow theirs.
SP Tutors is recruiting tutors in all subjects and key stages, for both online and face-to-face tuition. We are particularly keen to hear from you if you have KS3/4 Maths experience.
